LIVE Q&A for Students on Bargaining

On February 8 at 7pm, the faculty bargaining team, in conjunction with students, will be holding a LIVE Q&A Webinar to talk with students about what’s happening in bargaining, what faculty are asking for in order to better support students, and to answer questions that students may have.  

Faculty are fighting for:

  • More time to support students
  • Job protections for contract faculty, counsellors, and librarians
  • Binding action on equity, Indigenization, and decolonization
  • Faculty consent on the sale or reuse of their work

Please share with your students. As a reminder, it is absolutely legitimate for faculty to communicate with students about bargaining issues.  Our working conditions are their learning conditions.

Here’s the registration link for the live student webinar on Feb 8th (starts at 7pm)

When: Feb 8, 2022 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Topic: Student Town Hall on Bargaining
NOTE: French translation and ASL interpretation will be provided.
